The Face of Australia Mineral Therapy Illuminators come in four shades:
- Angel Mist (warm off-white)
- Angel Blush (soft pink)
- Angel Flame (deeper pink)
- Angel Glow (bronze)
I have Angel Mist and Angel Glow to review and swatch for you.
Angel Mist is very delicately pigmented. Ideally used as a highlighting colour, it doesn’t so much provide pigmentation as an almost invisible opalescence.
Angel Glow on the other hand is quite heavily pigmented. Because it is ideally used as a bronzing product, I need to use a very light touch when applying it to my lily-white skin. I find the easiest way to keep the pigmentation of Angel Glow under control is to mix it with some primer, foundation or body moisturiser before applying it.
Ease of application:
Both Angel Mist and Angel Glow are a breeze to apply, although the rich pigmentation of Angel Glow means I need to use a light touch. Using the pads of your fingers, pat a small amount of product onto your skin.
The formulation melts into liquid or cream products beautifully, but I would suggest using caution when applying these over powder.
I get all-day lasting power out of both Angel Mist and Angel Glow.
I like the packaging of these illuminators. They are housed in a simple squeezy tube – simple to dispense and use, and most importantly, hygienic.
It is also worth mentioning that these are MASSIVE for a facial product. Each tube contains 50mL (1.7 fl.oz). That may not sound like a lot, but to put it in perspective, a standard foundation is 30mL or 1 fl.oz. This is almost twice that size!
Anything else worth mentioning?:
Here are some face swatches with my naked face for comparison.
Here I am wearing Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum Foundation in #51; FoA Illuminator in Angel Glow on my cheek; FoA Illuminator in Angel Mist on Cheekbone and Browbone and Benefit BadGal Lash Mascara.
